Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coaching Search: First Round of Interviews to End by Weekend per Reports

According to Jason La Canfora, both Joe Philbin and Tom Clements have scheduled head coaching interviews with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week. It appears that neither coach has turned down the Bucs, this time, as the Bucs continue to expand their coaching search.

Both Jason La Canfora and ESPN's Chris Mortensen report that the first round of interviews will come to an end this weekend, however, when the Bucs are expected to finalize a list of coaches they want to interview a second time. In that schedule those second-round interviews would happen next week, allowing the Bucs to sign a head right around the Senior Bowl.

The Bucs have brought in Jerry Gray, Mike Zimmer, Rob Chudzinski, Mike Sherman, Marty Schottenheimer and Brad Childress for interviews. With Joe Philbin and Tom Clements expected to come for interviews this week, the total comes to eight interviews so far. The Bucs could add even more interviews to this list before the weekend. The coaching search is certainly extensive now.
